NOTE: This fix pack can only be applied on IRM 3.1 database schema marked as build 26. ( - DB2 8.1). Trying to install this fix pack on top of any other database build will fail. If the database schema is marked as build 27, then the Fix Pack database script is not required to be ran.

Also some miscellaneous items

Auto Classify:
Any Auto Classify Rules previously created in 3.1 that contain parenthesis "(" or ")", will cause an error when it is executed because of a bug in 3.1. This bug has been fixed in this fix pack, however if you currently have any auto classify rules containing parenthesis, you must open the rule using Records Manager Admin Client, and then re-save the rule. This will fix the problem.

Saved Queries:
If you have one or more saved queries in IRM 2.1.1 then you must run the 3.1 database upgrade included with this fix pack for these queries to be converted successfully.

Profiles and Defaults:
If you have defined one or more profiles or defaults in IRM 2.1.1 and:
1. You are currently running IRM 2.1.1 and wish to upgrade to IRM 3.1
You must run the IRM 2.1.1 to 3.1 database upgrade program that comes with this fix pack to ensure proper conversion of these profiles and defaults.


2. You have already upgraded to IRM 3.1 from 2.1.1
You must run the DBConverter.bat utility to translate the 2.1.1 profile and default definitions that were not correctly upgraded by the original 3.1 database upgrade program, failing to do so will result in "java.lang.NullPointerException" whenever one of those profiles or defaults is accessed. Please refer to DBConverterTool_Readme.txt for full details.

DTD (Document Type Definition):
Advanced Query now includes a new report output option for "DTD". If you select this radio button then the DTD for the selected object type will be saved to disk with an extension of "DTD". This file can be used by some 3rd party report designers to design WYSIWYG report templates for IRM reports.
For example, products such as Stylevision ( can import an IRM generated XML data file as well as the corresponding DTD file and use this information to generate a WYSIWYG report template. This template can then be exported as an XSL-FO template, which can be imported into IRM for use when generating PDF reports.
